Gallery Opening: Joseph Pearson

Join Asheville School in the John M. Crawford Art Gallery on Thursday, January 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., for the opening of an exhibit of work by Asheville Artist Joseph Pearson.

Artist Statement: "Inspired by the subject matter that unites our humanity, I am interested in telling the story of the 'Everyman,' painting people as portraits and figures in oil, charcoal and pastel pencil. I draw inspiration from many directions, scenes from the streets, issues in the news I have read about regarding current social trends. I am interested in the transformative energy of art to heal social ills. No conversation is more worth having than that which addresses to some degree the condition of our fellow man."

Pearson's work will hang in the John M. Crawford Art Gallery from January 10 through March 1.
